    I did not know there was such a thing... Where do I find it? At the verizon online store?

    Many years back, I had the Motorola Razor phone. I just found my old charger, and it fits into my Droid X.

    Is this an option to use to charge the phone? It won't mess up anything would it?

    No just a plain 'electrical' extension cord. They have them at wal-mart, dollar general, heck even gas stations sell them.

    This is the cheapest one I could find at walmart.com but it is way beefier than you need.

    Walmart.com: Woods 267 25' 3-Conductor 16 Gauge Outdoor Extension Cord: Home Improvement

    I'm sure if you go to a local goodwill store they will have a bin of them for $1.00 or something.

    Don't use another charge on the Droid X. On the regular Motorola Droid it has caused some issues, maybe not with the X but why take chances.

    If you really want to get past the battery issue, go to Amazon and purchase a couple of spare batteries (under 20.00), go to ebay and get a wall charger (about 5.00) and last but not least if you use it in your car a lot get a charger for the car.

    Smartphone suck the life out of batteries. You can do all the little tweaks here and there you like, its not going to make much difference. Next thing you know you're so hung up on the battery you lose the benefit of the phone.

    Totally agree...I don't want to hamper the functionality of my phone just to save 10 mins of battery life.

    I have had short usage times with my D1 and now my DX, to some degree (although better usage times on DX compared to a rooted Droid OC'd), but small price to pay for such an incredible piece of tech.

    I have a few widgets that update themselves, also using Launcher Pro Plus, and Beautiful Widgets (which I have heard can drain the battery), but I just figure I will just have to keep a charger with me at home, in the car, and at work. Such will be life until batteries go nuclear or something. :reddroid:

    Just so you all know I found an application in the market called adjbrightness that will let you dim your brightness beyond the standard settjngs. However, this does required root, but i'm noticing battery improvements already.

    The chargers I found on Ebay all are just standard MicroUSB chargers, with the Droid X and Razor listed as compatible. What would make them any different than the MicroUSB made my Motorola for the Razor?

    I'm just curious....

    On the cables there should be a tag showing the power output. If they are the same then you should be ok.

    No, I do not have either turned on. I don't have an earpiece, so I have bluetooth turned off. I also have the Wifi Turned off. The only thing I have on is the GPS. I'm wondering if I should just turn that off when I'm at home?[/QUOTE]

    I find gps to be the biggest offender.

    Both cords have a tag, but it only says, for warranty information call.. XXX-XXX-XXXX. I don't see anything about power output. ??

    I have decided to turn GPS off when I am at home, and put the widget on the screen that allows for easy toggle on/off. It seems to have helped, but I will see how it goes today.

    Heck, I would love to get 12 hours even. I am lucky to get 8. GPS and WIFI are off. Screen is on auto so it is dim most of the time and is set to 15 second off time. 15 seconds has helped but it is annoying.
